• Description: Wool scour rinse water treatment & recycling system
  • Location: Christchurch
  • Project type: Design, build, install and commission

A treatment solution for the high-flow low-strength rinse water stream was installed to reduce suspended solids and colour to the point where water could be recycled back to the process.  This system helped to reduce the discharge from site from in-excess of 1,000 to 250 m³/day and stopped the overall site discharge to river.  Apex Environmental delivered a range of integrated technologies which resulted in the site having world leading environmental performance and world leading footprint.
